This guidebook was created to inform and support interested Canadian foundations to begin or deepen their Impact Investing activity.
We created the guidebook and its network of supports for foundations large and small, with different capacities and levels of commitment. While the size of a foundation can increase its capacity to invest, foundations of all types and sizes have chosen to follow this path from a desire to have a greater positive impact in their communities and the world more broadly.
The guide was written to provide practical strategies and tactical support for executive directors and board members of foundations that are considering or beginning to make impact investments.
This guide features stories from foundation leaders who have successfully introduced Impact Investing in their organizations. Each story links to extended content – interviews, videos and other material – created to support your journey. Read on to discover multiple paths, strategies and tactics for advancing your Impact Investing journey.
